What do you need to know about floor tiling?
When you are planning a project involving floor tiling you must be sure to take accurate measurements, as this will determine what materials you need and how long the job will be. For more complex tiling jobs make sure to check the experience of your different choices to make see if they have done similar jobs before, and with how much success.
There are various qualifications related to floor tiling, as well as organisations that enforce high standards and codes of conduct for it as a specific service, including the Floor Industry Trading Association. Check that your choice has a Construction Skills Certification Scheme card (CSCS) as this vouches for their skills and proves that they have passed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test.
Be aware that in transport or when being cut and shaped tiles can break, so when getting tiles you should overbuy on what you need, allowing around 25% for accidental damage.
How much does floor tiling cost?
The usual breakdown for floor tiling includes labour and the cost of the tiles and tiling materials. You can save some money by finding, buying and selecting the tiles yourself rather than relying on the tiler. You can also save money by disposing of waste materials yourself: while it is free for you to do so, a business has to pay to dispose of industrial waste.
Overall cost will be determined by the size and length of the job as well as the quality of the tiles. Tiling a room could cost anything between £250 and £1000 based on this. Make sure you ask for a breakdown and that you have several quotes on hand to compare before making your final decision.
